I have a feature request ...

Desktop Widget

The one thing that keeps me from benefiting from using manictime as thoroughly as I could is the stopwatch feature. I don't always get popups reminding me to change. I'd like something similar to Toggl desktop widget where I could easily view what I'm being tracked automatically as doing (autotagged etc), as well as the current manual "stopwatch" tag I've set.

        This appears to be a similar request to "Timer in Taskbar" http://support.manictime.com/forums/222041-feature-requests/suggestions/11542083-timer-in-the-taskbar-or-elsewhere-when-main-wind

        Overall, I'd love to see some sort of always-on-top mini window that I can tuck into a corner of my screen which shows just a tiny version of my Tags timeline for the day so far AND bits of pomodoro/stopwatch info (start/pause/stop, time left, etc.)

        This is an interesting suggestion. I don't use the Pom timers but another way might be to have MT 'collapse' into a mini-window that floats always-on-top and shows the remaining time. Kind of how some music players do to keep just the player controls always visible.

        The metronome-type click every so often (30 secs? 1 minute?) also seems like a nice touch.

        A main feature of other time tracking systems seems to be some element which is always on the screen to remind the user their time is being tracked/tagged (or not). This would make it much harder for users to forget to switch projects they are working on or to forget to start the timer, if applicable.

        A configurable status bar at the top of the screen might work best, but personally I'd be happy with the tag currently being used (or an indicator if none is used), and the time since this started.

        I'd like to see some kind of docking capability where I can keep the ManicTime window on the side of my screen open at all times. Contents of the dock should be simple. Basically, timer and tags. Thanks!

        Timer in the taskbar (or elsewhere) when main window minimized. Right now if I work on something, and I set a stop-timer or a Pomodoro timer I would like to know the remaining time.

        Additionally, it would be great, if I put a headset, to hear a click each x seconds (like the pomodoro technique is actually supposed to be).

        Could you add an "always on top" preference?

        I like to continually display the Stopwatch and DAY END (i.e., current time) in the bottom left-hand corner of my primary monitor, and in order to see this, I currently have to reduce the width of windows. If there was an "always on top" I could maximize windows and still be able to always see this information.

        Thanks!
